Using a megaphone, Dwight calls down to the employees crossing the parking lot and brags, "This is what a real salesman looks like!" Inside the office, Jim is telling someone he's in. I guess it's the startup in Philly, although I don't know why he's hiding it from Pam. Or how long he plans to do so. Dwight rides out onto his tightrope and almost immediately flips the bike so it's upside down and he's left dangling from the handlebars, to the horror of everyone below. At least the duct tape is holding up, though.
"In the parking lot today, there was a circus," Creed VOs as the fire department rescues Dwight. "The copier did tricks on the high wire, a lady tried to give away a baby that looked like a cat. There was a Dwight impersonator and a Jim impersonator, a strong man crushed a turtle. I laughed and I cried. Not bad for a day in the life of a dog-food company." So, I understand this is the last season, but is the network is committed to the whole season?
In the tag, Nellie's desk appears to have been surrounded by the trash and recycling bins, which means she's constantly getting hit by both as people throw their refuse from their desks. In a TH, she's trying to put a good face on it, claiming that she just happens to be sitting where the bins are, even as a can hits the window behind her. Andy THs about his two passions: "Recycling, and revenge." "Fluke," Nellie says as another can hits behind her. And then, as is customary, the teaser of Parks and Recreation makes me laugh harder than I did the whole last half hour.
